The plebs think other plebs love it, that's why they love it.. But watch what happens once they realize banks don't need not want xrp. They want Ripple Inc's network and use their own (self issued and controlled) token, not xrp.
From what I have seen past year, usually triangles, that get too big (in time) so they reach the max of the triangle shape, don’t get a real break out.
